New Experiment

So, I am tryng to keep up with my promise to try new recipes.

For some reason I have this memory stuck in my head that my mom used to cook Chicken Cacciatore.

Which is so odd since my mom's idea of spaghetti sauce back in the day was ketchup.

I had the idea suck in my head and decided to go for it. It was fabulous.

I sort of looked at a recipe and sort of improvised.

Chicken Cacciatore

1 Chicken cut up (8 pieces or so - you can use just breasts, with bone and skin, if you like)
1 28 oz can Crushed Tomatoes
1 package mini portobellos
1 small onion
Olive oil
Italian seasonings

Salt and pepper the chicken in a bowl or plate. 2-3 turns of olive oil in a big pot. Add onions until translucent (add a little salt and pepper), then add chicken to brown the skin. Add mushrooms until cooked. Add crushed tomatoes and let simmer.

I really don't know how long I let it simmer but it was delicious over some egg noodles. My daughter tried it and she loved it. The sauce was great too. I plan on making this one again.
